Today’s show could also be called “the worst good news possible” because, yes, the Supreme Court declined to completely gut Roe v. Wade (despite the fact that Roe is effectively dead in many ways), but this was not John Roberts turning into AOC. Find out why in Andrew’s breakdown!
Before that main story though, our first segment is about some reallllly bad news out of Florida. Remember when Florida voters came out overwhelmingly in supermajority numbers to restore voting rights to ex-felons? Yeah Republicans said “nah.” We last covered this, when we thought the courts scored us a victory, in Episode 363.
We also discuss the Supreme Court granting cert for some Mueller Report cases, which is NOT good news.
